don't add any support just like that.

this router has identical hardware as miwifi mini and we know there are still problems with both wifi interfaces on mini.

let the chinese give fix for low wifi signal on mini, then it will be easy to support router 3.

what do you mean with low wifi signal? the signal strength?
is there any open case/discussing this problem where i can see progress on the fix for this problem?

Is there any update on this device/feature? Isn't this just a minor patch as it seems the device is almost identical to miwifi mini?

I have the router and it's a pure fail. I've set it to AP only mode, but it contacts 2 servers in China every 5 minutes. Not sure what it wants to download/upload as I blocked those IPs and domain names on my external-facing router.
I would LOVE to have pure OpenWRT with the Xiaomi bullshit removed.
Until it's not working, I have it in my shelf - not willing to put such chatty device on my home network. So if somebody is willing to provide the support, I would happily lend or possibly even donate the device.
